Reviewed December 28, 2011

Onion soup was about as good as Campbells, service favored family and old friends present at other tables. I cannot reommend it.

“Great lunch, better staff”
Reviewed November 15, 2011

My wife and I wandered into Cafe Moderne for lunch back in April and we were not disappointed at all. The kind and patient wait staff let us stumble through our order in broken French and were very, very accommodating. My wife had the nicoise salad which was very fresh and tasty. I had the grilled chicken which came out hot, and juicy and the skin was to die for. Top it off with a bottle of wine and some of their chocolate mousse and it was a meal to remember. Go there!

“Calm dining with great food”
Reviewed September 23, 2010

There are generous portions of delicious couscous and meats (mainly lamb), excellent fish dishes (I had one of the best swordfish steaks I've ever eaten) grilled to perfection. This restaurant is a real find. Also amazing creme brulee. Closed Mondays and Sunday lunch. They take Visa/Mastercard but not AmEx (can you blame them?)
